Vibol Sik

I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters. My father died when I was 16. I have been supported by CRST since 2013. This NGO helps me a lot such as providing high standard school and other activities in order to improve my education.

 

Now, I am studying at university, and I have one year more to finish my BA. I also work in Golden Villa as an operation manager. Since 2016, I can support the school fees be myself. However I still join the monthly community service with CRST students because I am a part of this CRST family.

I am very lucky to be a member of CRST, and I have a strong commitment to share what I have learnt to many other people in my society.

Sokphatt Mut

I joined the CRST in 2014 when I was in grade 11.  My family was poor because they needed to support the children to go to school, 4 sisters, one brother, and myself. 

Now I have got the full scholarship to study Chemistry at RUPP University, in Phnom Pehn since the end of 2015. I am also volunteering for one NGO in Phnom Pehn. I teach English and Chemistry. Once a month, I come to Siem Reap to join community service with CRST members. 

I would like to thank CRST that still support my allowance so that I can live in Phnom Pehn, and I always keep my smile with my life to get results back.
 

Samath Orn

I joined as a member in CRST since 2012 while I got stuck to continue studying at the university since my family could not support me. I am fatherless.

I finished my BA of Law Social and Science in 2014. Then I took the tests to be a police officer. After two years training, I now work as military police with Gendarmerie Royal Khmer in the Ministry of National Defense.

Visal Sik

I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters, and I am the third child. My father passed away. When I graduated from high school, I would like to continue to study at university, but my family could not support me. I was forced to work to earn income for the family. Fortunately, in 2012, I met with Susan from HVC; she introduced my brother and me to Aviv Palti, and we were accepted to be the NGO members.

Now I am studying at university, and I have only one year more to finish my BA. I am also working at The Frangipani Green Garden Hotel and Spa as a Branch Manager. Since 2016, I can pay my school fees by myself. However, I still sometimes join the monthly community service with CRST members.

I would like to say thank you very much to Susan, Aviv, and all CRST students that have given me a great opportunity that I have never expected.

Saven Keat

I became a CRST member in 2011. I was born in a poor family in the rural area. While I was studying in grade 7, I worried about my family ability to support me to study in the city. Luckily two years later, I was given a chance to get a scholarship from CRST.

As I have become a member of the NGO, I have improved my capacity a lot. Moreover, being a member of the NGO is also a part of participating in helping community as well. I joined many activities such as workshops, learning skills, Volunteer in the sales department at Project Y.


After I finished grade 12 in 2016, I got a scholarship to study in Thailand. I am going to take my Biology Degree at University of Phayao, located in Thailand. The scholarship provides me with a monthly allowance, health care, free dormitory and all school fees.
